    2017 Trek Slash details

    Rumors says 2017 Slash will be a 160mm 29er only (no 27.5), to compete with those new long travel 29ers like BMC Tralfox, Niner WFO and of course Specialized Enduro 29.

    Any info/pisc of the 2017 Slash?

    Hoping the new Slash turns out to be the "real" replacement for the Remedy 29er that I love so much.

    There are lot of rumors with it.
    I am hoping for a 160/170 travel bike. Hell Niner has one now. Santa Cruz has one now.
    They even have a 170 27.5+ bike.

    I am hoping it comes in both 27.5 or 29er with at least 160/170 travel.

    and no SRAM brakes
    Too Many .

    There are two spy shots of a 29er in the "What's new for 2017" thread. It's no longer full floater (bottom of the shock is fixed to the frame) and appears to be 1x specific. Very interested in seeing how it ends up materializing.

    Last week CTC (Trek's Israeli dealer) launced 2017 Fuel ex & Remedy line up.
    During the launch event CTC representaives said that the 2017 Slash is a 29er only with a 160mm travel.

    It's a little odd that the Remedy is only 27.5 while the Slash (which is Trek's more agressive/enduro bike) is 29er only...

    I guess we have to wait and see...

    Trek i assume didn't like their EWS riders picking the Remedy 29er and added a 160 fork for the races over the bike they built for it, the Slash,.

    I agree, It makes sense.

    Eliminating the smaller wheel size on the Slash is still ludicrous. Making it a 170mm weapon would differentiate it from the bigger wheel size and would fall perfectly in line with it's mission statement. It's almost as if Trek's approach this year was eliminating the most familiar version of as many models as possible, and drastically changing the purpose of every single one. I'm glad they're apparently still making a bike for me (big travel, big wheels), but if I were a 650 rider I'd be pissed right now.

    Man - that beast looks burly! Look at how fat the down tube is!

    I want a bike that color.

    Any bike!

    If it's 160 at both ends, that may be overkill for my needs, but they DO have to make sure there is a significant "step" between it and the new Fuel EX.

    OMG! It's a beauty. very nice looking bike.
    I think it's the new Slash because:
    1. Upper left corner of the pic says "Slash 29".
    2. All 2017 Remedy line up run PIKE forks, while this one runs Fox 36.
    3. It looks much more burlier than the Remedy, what a massive down tube.

    No full floater either, unlike the Remedy/Fuel frames. Just like the prototype leaks. I wonder what that boss is on the downtube below the R.

    Looks like it has that silly "knock-block" as well...

    The spot on the downtube is probably the location where they attach a zip tie to hold the housing run inside the tube. They do this to keep them from rattling.

    From zooming-in the pic, I'v spotted Bontrager SE4 tires.
    All Remedies run XR4.

    The most obvious giveaway that was missed by us all is the deluxe plus shock.

    I think there may have been confirmation that the Slash will be a 29er if you read between the lines of this article about Rene Wildhaber's 2017 Remedy for the EWS on pinkbike.

    René Wildhaber's Trek Remedy - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy - Pinkbike

    This paragraph sticks out for me...

    ''I always try to ride different bikes and find out the possibilities on those bikes,'' he explained, before going on to say that we could see him on a number of different bikes throughout the year. ''I'll get a 29er again. I was also involved with the development team, so with the final product, I'm always curious to find out how it works.''

    I don't go off any of the shock mounted to the bikes before they hit the site
    Look at the Trek Remedy video on the Trek site. One or two of the Remedy have a piggy back fox. No Remedy on their site has one

    René Wildhaber's shock is also one we can't get.
    I have even talked to Fox about the shocks. If i sent mine in to have it adjusted to a different level of shock or a trade up.
    They said no. Due to the buying power of Trek and their race support. They get the cool stuff. We don't

    The chainstay looks like it might be single-ring only. That's about has high as they can get it without the chain rubbing on the top of it going from as low as a 28 in front to the 10t. Pretty thick looking too.

    Bet one of the first things people want to question after experiencing its DH capability, what if you put a dual crown fork on it and see how it does on some real DH courses.

    oh that's a good thought.
